How to Enable Closed Captioning on Roku?

When enabled, closed captioning (abbreviated CC) shows a film or program's spoken components, background noises, and sound effects as text on your television screen. These captions provide a significant link to entertainment and news for deaf or hard-of-hearing people.

Closed captions are only accessible when the service supplier (e.g., BBC iPlayer, NOW TV) includes them. Check with the service provider for data on the accessibility of closed captions. For any queries on Roku navigate to website.
